Moreover, it is essential to stress that in Greece project opened a whole new branch of potential investments, linked to the requalification through PVPPs over abandoned or abusive landfills and waste dumps (there are in great number in Greece) given the potential development of the PV market, sun conditions and FIT developments.
The benefits for the small municipalities in the near environment are very high. The citizens get a live example for green energy production in their municipality area. Furthermore local companies have taken part of the works during construction and jobs can be generated for the local operation and security of the photovoltaic park. Another important note is that in the past two years it has been observed, that operating PV systems in Greece produce about 10 to 15 higher output than the estimated values due to the fact that in the recent years the annually available solar radiation is higher than the values used from databases.
